Olive Garden’s Buy One, Take One deal is back for a limited time, which means you can dine in for one meal and leave with another meal to stick in your fridge and enjoy tomorrow — all starting at just $12.99.

Whether you’re looking to upgrade your office lunch or just need to have dinner figured out for two nights in a row (it’s been a long week — we get it!), Olive Garden has you covered.

The offer will only be available for a limited time, so you’ll want to swing by your local Olive Garden location to take advantage sooner rather than later.

For the first meal, which includes unlimited breadsticks and unlimited soup or salad, you can choose from entrees such as Creamy Garlic Tuscan Chicken, Fettuccine Alfredo and Shrimp Scampi.

For the meal you take to go, you can choose from Spaghetti with Meat Sauce, Cheese Ravioli and Five Cheese Ziti al Forno. The second meal won’t come with the option of soup, salad or breadsticks, but you could add those for an additional charge if you really want to relive the full Olive Garden experience the second time around.

Olive Garden shared the news of the limited-time offer in a video on its YouTube channel:

This isn’t the only deal going on at the restaurant right now, either. You can also find Early Dinner Duos starting at $8.99. So, if you and the family want to stop in between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday, you’ll get dinner at a major discount when you order meals such as Eggplant Parmigiana, Chicken Margherita and more.

Of course, the entree still comes with the best parts of the meals at Olive Garden — breadsticks and your choice of soup or salad.

If you and your co-workers want to get out of the office, you can also take advantage of the Lunch Duos deal, with meals starting at just $6.99. To spend less than seven bucks on your meal, select from a Grilled Vegetable & Cheese Piadina, the Eggplant Parmigiana Breadstick Sandwich or the Spaghetti with Meat Sauce Pasta Bowl.

These deals are available at participating Olive Garden locations (note that selection and prices may vary by location).

Buon appetito!
